life Monopoly Board.

Date and Time:

Saturday 24th September 2011


Shrewsbury Town Centre


More Info:

This event is the brainchild of Vivienne Band from

Clear Design Shrewsbury. Based on the traditional

game-famous London roads will be replaced with the

likes of Shrewsbury Abbey, The Boat House Pub,

Shrewsbury School & the Bridges-English, Welsh &

Kingsland will replace the 3 stations in the traditional



Six teams are needed to come forward & each team

will be made up of 6 players, who will be provided with

costumes that represent pieces from the game. Each

team will be asked to raise £400 per team for the

Hospice, with the winning team receiving a mystery

prize. The aim will be for each team to make their way

round the course in the fastest time, with each

competitor taking on a different section of the board.


More excitement-if you land on the Shrewsbury Prison

spot, they will have to take a trip up to the jail or pay a
fine, so boosting the coffers of Hope House.

Rules will be obeyed as there will be marshals from

Clear Design & Hope House ensuring no cheating!


Following the event, an after party will be held for the

contestants to celebrate their achievements
